Excerpt from What Is the Working of the Church of Spain What Is Implied in Submitting to Rome What Is It That Presses Hardest Upon the Church of England A TractCrucifix with kisses The scene was very striking, and the effect of his eloquence immense The local paper says, that on the following day one thousand persons confessed and communicated in one church.In another Sermon, the preacher described the Day of Judgment, with the following additions to the Scriptural account The Angels will come forth from Heaven in procession, bearing the True Cross, of which all the parts will be miraculously gathered together This he said came from the Fathers A glorious throne will be set up, on which our Lord Jesus Christ on the mention of the name he touched his cap will sit, and on His right hand will be seated His Mother, Maria Santisima, our Lady, the Sove reign Queen of Angels, on the mention of her name he touched his cap again, and every head bowed, and a murmur ran through the church Ave and thrones will be placed for the Aposdes The most remarkable thing was the constant mention of Maria Santisima, with the titles above given each time repeated, the great reverence shewn by the people to her name, and their taking no notice of that of our Lord The farewell of the condemned soul was striking Farewell Jesus Christ, whose blood I have wasted, whose mercies I have scorned farewell Maria Santisima, whose love I have despised, whose kindness I have rejected fare well Angels, with whom I might have dwelt for ever Then followed the farewells to his own relations, to the son, the mother, the wife, who are going into everlasting happiness, while he is to be in torment for ever By this time the nerves of the people were so worked up, that they were ready to cry about any thing or nothing, and at this point one woman by my side actually howled so as to make it difficult for me to hear What I felt to be painful in this last Sermon was, that the affections of the people and their hopes were directed as largely to Mary as to Jesus It was not so Mariolatrous as some that I have heard, but it grieved one to see the mixture of evil in so much good.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
